Our last meal in NYC was at Tick Tock diner in midtown. It was super early in the morning before we were heading to Newark to catch a plane back to San Diego. Anna had what looked like a pretty terrible fried eggs, bacon and french fries. I had seasoned waffle fries (which is the reason I used to get lunch from there when I worked in midtown). There were a few other people there during that oh so early/late hour and several of them were still there after we left an hour later.

Oooops, I did this strip but forgot to upload it. Oh well, here it is. If you see it you see it, if you don’t then you don’t :/
I took this last December on our trip to the mall. One of many outdoor malls I’m sure that I’ll see here on the West Coast.
Sorry, this photo isn’t very representative of the San Diego trolley but this is what I got. We did a lot of shopping for our apartment this past weekend. Our movers are showing up tomorrow so we’ll finally be getting things in order and maybe it’ll start sinking in that I really moved to San Diego.
This is the big sign in Little Italy in San Diego. This style of font always reminds me of Rapture in BioShock. In Seattle there are quite a few signs that have this type of font too. Little Italy is decidedly different in feel here than in NYC. Of course pedestrian population is far far less dense and also fewer small little restaurants.
I’ve only been to a couple in the area but most of them look like the type of restaurants that you only eat at every once in a while because you’re going to be dropping at least $20-30 and even higher if you get alcohol. The places I’ve been to have been good so far with some new interesting foods I haven’t had before. I had a really great squid ink gnocchi when I was visiting last December.
This is one of the first things I was telling everyone about San Diego. There are free doggie poop bag dispensers on the street! These things would be empty the second they hit the streets of New York, just ’cause hey, free plastic bags. This was definitely one of those “Whoa, I really am in another city” kind of moments.
I decided that to maintain some level of quality it was preferable to take photos with the Dude plush Anna made for me rather than try to draw him with a mouse.
One of the biggest differences between the East and West coast are the local vegetation. This about sums it up.
We made it safely to San Diego last night! Thankfully Anna’s cat made it and does not appear too traumatized. She complained a lot on the way to JFK, but in the plane she was surprisingly chill. Still, the cat carrier was TINY so we were worried. She seems to be pretty comfortable just walking around and lying in various parts of our new apartment.
My computer won’t be here for another week, so I’m probably just going to do photo comics until then. This is one that I took last December when I visited. But judging from the forecast it looks like this photo could easily be taken tomorrow too. Yes, the fire hydrants here are yellow. Just like in the Shelbyville episode of The Simpsons.
It’s going to be up to 80 degrees this weekend. Where the hell am I???
This was part of my lunch yesterday that my girlfriend made for me. There’s tarako (fish eggs) in his head and body which meant when I scooped into him with a spoon it was like his brains were being revealed. The chicken is a quail egg with fake sausage for the head thing and a beak cut out of lemon. Why he’s holding a chicken I don’t know, but I do know that quail eggs are tasty.
A friend of mine once had some friends from out of town visiting. When they were in Brooklyn they kept on asking him when they were going to New York City. When he insisted they were already in New York City they kept on asking “No, when are we going to New York City?” I took this when I was seeing friends in Queens so that people who are similarly uninformed can understand that Manhattan isn’t all of New York City. That’s what makes it so big.
